FedEx Quickship OBA @ODC 2008

FedEx’s David Zanca did a demo of their Quickship application at Bill Gates’ keynote at Office Developer Conference. You can check out Bill Gates’ keynote recording here.

FedEx Quickship is a great example on how Office Business Applications can enhanced collaboration and user’s productivity. They have leverage the following OBA features:

1. Quickship toolbar inside Microsoft Outlook 2003/2007.

2. Printing and doc gen to FedEx Kinkos from Word 2007


3. Quickship site template for SharePoint 2007

4. Integration with Office Live

I got the pictures from John Mullinax’s blog. More details here. Some features only available to FedEx customers in US, but you can get a feel of the OBA app with their Flash demo here.
